I played a used Fender MB-4 bass today was made in Japan. It played well, had one big pluss this is the lightest bass I've ever played. The sound was OK the pickups seemed a little week, but it sounds better than the the Epiphone I'm playing now (a P bass copy). I'm not much of a bass player yet but I'm thinking about really working on it and getting better. The shop where I was playing this had it listed for $199.00 with no case. Anyone have any expereinces with this bass, what are the pros and cons. Is this a decent price for this instrument used (I don't think they are available new anymore).
